  • Awesome but...

    by Amer z

    This app is absolutely amazing, especially if you hit mix at the bottom. However, you can only go through 7 sessions until you have to pay a hefty 20 dollars. Make it 5 and ill buy it

  • Ap psychology

    by Maily2525

    This app is really great. It asks you a question on an index card then once you tap it it not only gives the answer but it givea you the answer of why it is correct.

  • Useful

    Use it when nothing else to do

  • Wanna pass the AP test?

    by James and Robin

    Buy it, use it, pass it.

  • Great

    by Shnozzleberry

    This app used to be a paid app. You can now try it before buying. I was hesitant to pay upfront for something I knew nothing very little about. Now that I've tried it, I am 100% convinced it's worth it.

  • Absolutely Phenomenal

    by Federico J.

    I truly regret not buying this app before. It would have helped me with every chapter test. It is spectacular, im going to study it all week long and I'm confident if I study it enough I'll pass the AP exam. 5 stars and I recommend it to anyone, it's worth it all!

  • Wonderful

    by Sari789

    Helping me with my two-week cramming :)

  • No exams for me, but really useful!

    by quest4knowledge

    I don't have any exams to study for (graduated a while ago - knock on wood), but I still LOVE psych, so this is a great way to refresh myself on the important stuff. I'm diggin' it!


    by Ico1114

    Thank you *so much* for this app. Preparing the study material for the APs takes a lot of time away from actual studying, so I was looking for anything that might help save time. Summarizing all these concepts would have taken me days - yet here it all is, ready to be studied. Now I can really learn efficiently, especially because of the great breakdown into units and then small pieces of information. Plus, I love that each deck actually tells you what percentage of the test this will make up for - helps with assigning priorities. If you're studying for the AP Psych exam - get this app!

  • Preparing me for everything I need to know for the AP Psych exam

    by lilsalad

    I seriously want to thank the creators of this app for putting out such an awesome app to help me study for the AP Psych exam. This app covers so much and the way they present the questions based on how well I know the answers makes me feel like I'm not wasting any time. Really, this is the best flashcard app I've ever used, not just for the cards I'm studying (which, as I said, are comprehensive and awesome), but also for the study experience that makes learning easy. Get this app!!!!

  • Thanks, Brainscape!

    by Ellen Petersen

    I couldn't imagine how I was going to get through all the material on the AP Psych Exam -- I felt like I was drowning in a sea of half-finished flash cards, and there was no way out. I happened to come across the AP Psych App, and it totally changed all of that! I now have all of the material in one organized place on my computer and iPhone, which is making it it so easy to study anywhere!! It's making such a difference in my study habits for the exam, and I will be coming back for every subject possible.

  • Yesssss!!!

    by ennazus517

    The AP gods smiled on me with this one! It's so easy to study for the AP exam with this app, since I can say how well I know each subject and it keeps showing me the stuff I don't know as well until I remember it. I've made my own flashcards for other classes before, but it's awesome to have all the stuff for the test already loaded so I don't have to go through the trouble of making my own flashcards. Most other sites I've used for AP psych are definitions, but this actually asks questions so it's easier to remember the differences between ideas in a chapter. Love. It.

  • Agreed

    by John Dickinson

    Lame deceitful business practice. Why not just be upfront?

  • Deceitful

    by kcwookie

    AppShopper tracked the price of this app showing that it move from $19.95 down to free. The reality is that the price didn't change at all. This app is a demo that only allows you to use it six times then you have to pay for $19.95. Nowhere in the description does it show that there is in app purchase for $19.95, and gives you the impression that the app is actually free. This is clearly bait and switch, using the Apple store to play games. While I am surprised that Apple didn't catch the in app purchase, it bothers me more that this company plays games with their prices. Do yourself a favor, look elsewhere for study apps. I rated this one star regardless of how many stars you see.

  • An absolute must-have for any AP psych student!!

    by Mollie Leonard

    This app is amazing!!! It covers all the topics on the exam and is broken down into decks by each section. It even tells you how much % of the test is based on those questions, so you know which areas to focus on. The questions are simple yet challenging enough to test your ability. Examples are given as well on questions that involve more complicated concepts. The best part is the confidence scale which sets them apart from any other flashcard app. Cards that I have a hard time with I rate a 1, and see them much faster… forcing me to remember! This app is NECESSARY for anyone studying for the AP psych exam… or any psych test at all! You won't regret it!

  • Awesome

    by AppMoJo

    Nice that a Psych app actually uses good psych principles to teach you stuff. This is a must-have for the AP test.
